Introduction
This booklet contains four Progress tests and one Summary test for the Language in Use Beginner course. Each of the Progress tests covers six units in the Classroom Book. The Summary test is for use at the end of the course, and makes use of material from all units. All five tests have the same format. There is an Answer key and Marking guide on pages 30–31. Each test has two components: • a written paper, covering grammar, vocabulary, reading and writing. • an (optional) oral test, in which pairs of students speak to the examiner and to each other. While the main aim is to help learners measure their progress as they go through Language in Use, both written and oral tests also give practice in techniques needed for public examinations such as the Cambridge Key English Test (KET).

The written component
This has eight sections. 70 marks are available. Section A: Sentences (10 marks) There are ten multiple choice gapped sentences (each with three options). The questions cover a range of grammar and vocabulary. Section B: Words (5 marks) This is a matching task on a lexical group. Learners choose five answers from seven options. Section C: Replies (5 marks) There are five multiple choice questions (each with three options). Learners have to complete five separate two-line exchanges. Section D: Conversation (6 marks) This is a matching task based on a short conversation. Learners choose six answers from eight options. Section E: Gapped text (7 marks) This is a three-option multiple choice cloze task. There are seven questions. Section F: Reading (8 marks) This is a reading comprehension task with eight multiple choice questions (each with three options). Section G: Cloze (11 marks) This is an open cloze task. Learners have to fill each gap with one suitable word. There are 11 gaps. Section H: Writing (18 marks) Three writing tasks. Students write short paragraphs (two or three sentences long) on a variety of topics. Some of the content is usually specified. There are six marks for each paragraph. Note: The test takes 70 minutes. If this is longer than you have available, it can be given in two parts: • Sections A–F, on the first three pages (the more receptive part of the test): 45 minutes. • Sections G–H, on the final page (the more productive part of the test): 25 minutes.

The oral component
This component is optional. Two students take the test at a time together with an examiner. The test has two sections, and takes around 7–8 minutes. 20 marks are available. Section A: Examiner–Student (10 marks) In this section, the examiner asks the two students questions in turn. Each student has to: – answer vocabulary questions, and spell one or two words. – answer one or two questions on a topic concerning their own lives. – talk briefly about a topic given by the examiner (three or four sentences). Section B: Student–Student (10 marks) In this section, the students talk to each other, using prompt cards. There are two kinds of activity: either A asks B questions about him- or herself. B answers the questions. or A asks B questions about e.g. a shop, a party. B answers using information on the prompt card. Two sets of prompt cards are used during each test, giving both students an opportunity to ask questions and answer them.
